Christmas isn’t over just yet as Carnival Cruise Line announces its ‘Grinchmas in July’ themed sailings onboard Carnival Splendor for the second year running.

Returning to Carnival Splendor in 2024 due to popular demand, the Grinch-themed cruises will bring the very best of ‘Christmas in July’ traditions to sea, allowing Aussie guests the fun of a wintery Christmas experience. Throughout the four sailings, the ship will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland including a giant Christmas tree with glittering lights and baubles galore, Christmas-themed beverages and speciality dining items as well as a dusting of winter ‘snow’ in the atrium.

The Grinch himself will join the festivities with special appearances and a screening of How the Grinch Stole Christmas at the Dive-In Movies. The festive glee on the sea continues with Christmas carolling, holiday games, trivia, arts and crafts, and a ‘Jingle Bell Jam’ soundtrack. There’s even an ugly Christmas sweater night and festive outfit competition.

The sailings form part of Carnival’s ongoing Dr Seuss partnership and their ‘Seuss at Sea’ offerings, including the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast, Seussapalooza and Seuss Storytime. Ensuring a very merry time for all, the Grinchmas in July themed fun comes in addition to the 45+ activities that guests have come to know and love onboard a Carnival cruise.

Carnival Cruise Line VP Kara Glamore comments, “Due to the sell-out success of our inaugural Grinchmas in July sailings, we’re bringing the festive cheer back and this year it’s going to be even Grinch-ier with more fun for the whole family. Grinchmas in July is exclusive to Carnival Splendor and is an extension of our Dr Seuss partnership, which we are so excited to continue into 2024.”
